About the Wine
This red wine is made by Drifting Wines in California. A great choice for rich beef dishes, especially steak. Formed from primarily Zinfandel grapes, this wine is vegetarian. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by Goldstone Land Company.
A fruit-forward-yet-bold red that’s loved for its red fruit flavors and smoky exotic spice notes. Known in America as Zinfandel where it is also made in sweeter rose style and in Southern Italy.
This grape is well known for its deep colour and high tanning levels. The dominant flavors are that of dark chocolate, blueberry, black pepper, sugar plum and black tea.
